SMOPYC - Going for growth in anticipation of increasing optimism in the marketSMOPYC - Going for growth in anticipation of increasing optimism in the market

The 15th SMOPYC, the International Show of Public Works, Construction and Mining Machinery, will be held from the 5th to the 9th of April 2011. As the event draws closer, the sector leaders and the Director of the Zaragoza Trade Fair Center give their thoughts on the evolution of the fair and their expectations for this year’s SMOPYC.

The interview was conducted with:

  • Francisco Carrillo, President of the Organising Committee of SMOPYC
  • José Luis del Prim, President of the Spanish Manufacturers Association of Construction and Mining Equipment (ANMOPYC)
  • Gerd Schreier, President of the Spanish Association of Distributors and Importers of Public Works, Mining and Construction Equipment (ANDICOP)
  • José Antonio Vicente, Director of the Zaragoza Trade Fair Center.

SMOPYC - Going for growth in anticipation of increasing optimism in the market

The 15th SMOPYC is approaching. How would you assess the current status of the event and in which direction is it going?

Francisco Carrillo:

“Despite the many years in existence and long history, the initial enthusiasm and desire to work remains strong. With each show, we benefit from the increasing experience gained over the years. The organisers are currently immersed in a period of intense work, during which significant modifications will take place to enable the exhibition to continue meeting its original objective: that of being a landmark for the industry.

Our aim is to be capable of providing a response to this demanding sector, which we realise is going through a difficult period but which we believe, the Zaragozza Trade Fair Centre in the form of SMOPYC 2011 will a positive step to emerging from the crisis."

José Luis del Prim:

"The exhibition can be no more than a reflection of the reality of the sector. It would be illusory to believe that an industry at its lowest point in decades will turn out en masse to attend a dedicated fair. But having said this, there are indications of a more favourable trend which gives us reason to believe that participation at SMOPYC 2011 is a must for those operating in the sector. In any case, we expect it to be a much better fair than if it had been held in April of last year or indeed 2009.

SMOPYC attracts exhibitors from large and smaller companies.     Investment is at an exceptionally low ebb, but following three stormy years and subsequent to taking stock of the effects of this, the time has come to build again.

SMOPYC attracts exhibitors from large and smaller companies.

At the upcoming SMOPYC, the main people involved in the sector, the most important opinions, the companies and their technical innovations will all be present. We all need to know what the future holds for our industry and there is particular interest in getting together with all those who make up this sector. "
